    Last day of the earth month challenge! I will definitely continue the habits that I've started developing through this challenge.

    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Support Local Food Systems
    Dependable fresh food, supporting local farmers and building resilient communities are just a few benefits of local food systems. Which of these (or other) advantages inspire you the most?

    I love fresh local produce and supporting local farmers. I recently discovered the 'Friday Food Market', which is a Boston based produce delivery service that sells excess produce from local distributors at a lower price. I ordered my first box of produce for $22 today and can't wait to receive it tomorrow

    Happy Earth Day! Seeing the numbers associated with my efforts over the last 22 days is eye opening!

    Eating a vegetarian breakfast each day has been so much easier than I'd thought!

    Land Sinks Forest-Friendly Foods 1
    How is your diet currently impacting deforestation? What can you do to decrease your negative impact and increase your positive impact?

    It seems that the production of soybeans is the biggest contributor to deforestation, and most of those soybeans go to feeding farm animals. This made me realize that almost everything in my daily diet - beef, chicken, eggs, dairy - could be being raised and produced in ways that harm the environment. In addition to cutting down on my consumption of these items, I need to understand where these products were produced before purchasing.

    If you live in Boston and are looking for an affordable, sustainable method of transportation, check out Blue Bikes! They have dozens of stations and hundreds (thousands?) of bikes. An annual membership is $115; I used my well being subsidy to drop it under $60!

    Coastal, Ocean, and Engineered Sinks Smart Seafood Choices
    Many states and countries have advisories on eating fish. Find out what is advised for your region. Do you think your diet choices fall within these guidelines? What steps do you need to take to make sure that they do?

    My diet choices fall under the MA advisory. Though it was interesting how varied the different regions all are!

    I downloaded the NorthEast guide from the seafood watch site, and while I was pleased to see that much of the seafood I enjoy is considered a 'best choice' as it is sustainably harvested a great majority of the time, I realized that tuna fish (something I grew up having for lunch) and salmon are that I need to start learning more about prior to buying, as it is sustainably farmed in some parts of the world, but in others they are overfished or caught in ways that harm the environment.
  • Reflection Question
    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Smaller Portions
    While dishing food out, we tend to load our plates with more than we need. Using smaller plates helps to mitigate this. Aside from the environmental benefits, what other benefits might come from eating/serving smaller portions?

    My eyes are always bigger than my stomach, so using smaller plates has helped me not overeat and not feel as drowsy after meals.
